    Smart Alarm
    An_265243 posted:
    We are a group of students that are currently developing a product that will change the way you think when you hear the word "alarm clock". Our product, Smart Alarm, is designed to wake even the heaviest sleeper from slumber. The product includes light, sound, no snooze button, a timed power off system, a pressure/weight detection system, and a battery backup system. The housing unit for the speakers and the lights will weigh no more than 5 pounds and be no bigger than 1 cubic foot for portability and everyday use in any situation. The pressure/weight system will be big enough to fit under a twin size mattress and will be thin enough to be unnoticeable and undetectable. The will be ports on the housing system of the speakers and lights to add extra pressure/weight sensor pads to accommodate for larger beds and mattresses. The device will not turn off until the pressure/weight sensors detect a zero value or no weight/pressure being applied. The device will silence while there is no pressure being applied to the pressure sensors. The device will become active again after pressure is applied to the sensors, this will continue for twenty to thirty minutes after the initial alarm goes off. If you would kindly give us some feed back on our design that would be greatly appreciated.
    Team of Students
